I stayed twice in the fall of 2014, once with a girlfriend and once with my husband. My husband and I arrived after dark with spectacular waves hitting the rocky shoreline. We woke to enjoy the park like grounds. Our "suite" had been recently renovated and everything was very clean and comfortable. The distance from Grand Marais is perfect. The... More

Three of us headed to Thomsonite Beach for a girls' weekend--we really enjoyed our time. We headed into Grand Marais, shopped the Trading Post and Ben Franklin. We then went to the Gunflint Tavern and had the most wonderful lunch. It was a clear sunny day, and we had a table right by the window--the lake view was beautiful, and... More

This was our first stay at Thompsonite for a Valentine's winter weekend getaway. It was just perfect. The owner is very nice and more than accommodating. We were in unit 3 and while nothing luxurious, it was very clean and had everything we needed. And yes, the winter sunrises and sunsets from those gliding chairs make for a perfect way... More

My husband and I just stayed at Thompsonite Beach Inn for the third time in 2 years. Slightly off the beaten track, yet easily accessible to hiking, restaurants--a hidden gem on the North Shore!

These cabins are located right on the lake with plenty of room to roam and explore. Close to Grand Marais and the Gun Flint so it was easy to hike all day and return to this location for a hot shower and a comfortable bed. the only reason for giving this a 4 rating instead of a 5 rating is...
